From The Heart Stamps March Blog Hop!

FtHS-March-blog-hop

Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps blog hop. This month the theme is “Case It” using one of our fellow design team members as inspiration!  To “case” another’s card, we use those elements of their style and make it our own.

As you hop along, please leave a comment on each blog. One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win an image of choice from the FTHS store.

If you have arrived from Kathy Curry’s website, you are in the right place, if not why don’t you start on the From the Heart Stamps blog, so you don’t miss anything.

For my card I used the fabulous inspiration of Nazeema “Calypso” Thompson from her post of January 7, 2016 where she created a shaker using sentiments as a background, used partial images, and flag banners.

Here’s her card I “Case-d”:

calypso

 

Here is my card as “case-d” from the design Calypso created.  For the background I used the congrats sentiment from “Cat’s Out of the Bag” which I brought into photo shop and adjusted both size and opacity. My focal image is “Laughing Giraffes” colored with Copic Markers and embellished.  The balloons are from “Birdie and Balloon” also colored with Copics.  After coloring my banner in the same Copics, I added a die cut the Die-Versions birthday die cut from glitter paper, which is also used on the My Favorite Things die frame.March Hop

Now head over to Kelly Schelske’s and see what she has created.

Thanks for hopping with us today. The hop will end on Monday March 7th at 6 am EST. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday March 9th.

  4. This is such a great take on Calypso’s card, Kathy! I love how you kept the style of her card but really made it your own! That background sentiment is such a great idea, and your giraffe is beautifully colored! Those balloons are just the right embellishment for the framed card, and they tie in with Calypso’s balloons.
